The last remaining mystery surrounding Thursday night’s (April 10th) Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony has been whether the surviving members of Nirvana would perform and who they would perform with. A clue emerged on Wednesday (April 9th) when a photo posted on at the Nirvana Facebook page showed Dave Grohl’s drum kit, Krist Novoslic’s bass, Pat Smear’s guitar and what appears to be a guitar belonging to Joan Jett.
Dave Grohl and Jett have some history together, with Grohl and his Foo Fighters bandmates performing with her on a segment of Late Show With David Letterman a while back.
R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe will induct Nirvana at Thursday night’s ceremony, which will take place at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Metallica drummer and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Lars Ulrich told Rolling Stone that he still hopes to see legendary British heavy rockers Deep Purple inducted into the Hall one day soon. Ulrich explained, “I’m not gonna get into the politics or all that stuff, but I got two words to say: Deep Purple. That’s all I have to say: Deep Purple. Seriously, people, Deep Purple, two simple words in the English language. But definitely, Nirvana is a no-brainer for the first year and I’m glad that Kiss is getting the long-overdue recognition that they deserved for everything that they pioneered, and then I got two words, Deep Purple! Did I say that already?”
The 29th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held tonight (April 10th) at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. This year’s inductees are Nirvana, Kiss, Peter Gabriel, Daryl Hall & John Oates, Linda Ronstadt, and Cat Stevens.
